Wolfram Alpha update & Microsoft Kumo
Wolfram Alpha officially launched this week. Here are two first reviews, especially as it compares/contrasts with Google and other engines:
- Five Things Wolfram Alpha Does Better (And Vastly Different) Than Google
- Wolfram|Alpha – the nerdy kid the other kids only talk to when they need help with a physics exam, not a rival to the cool, well-rounded brainiac Google.
In other search news, Microsoft is expected, next week, to unveil its updated search engine, codenamed Kumo.
